As the Winter weather descends, it can sometimes be difficult to know what clothes to wear to the office. Gone are the skimpy tops and heels from the summer, and out come the winter woollies. You want to find clothes which are appropriate for work, will keep you warm, but are also stylish enough to keep you looking good over the season. Luckily fashion designers have been working extra hard for us, and have came up with loads of gorgeous outfits to wear for work, over the winter.
If you enjoy wearing dresses to work, you can still wear these, even when the weather is cooler. Empire line and shift dresses are both styles which are very trendy this season, and are great styles for hiding any problem areas you want to cover up. The grey shift dress with black patent belt pictured above is a particularly versatile choice. Leather is one of the key trends for autumn/winter, so a leather dress, particularly in a camel colour, will look fabulous for wearing to the office. A comfortable knitted dress is another option for wearing to the office. If you choose to wear a dress over the Winter, you can’t really go bare legged, or you’ll end up freezing. Instead, wear a pair of warm, knitted tights for protection against the cold.
An alternative to a dress for work during the winter season, is a skirt. Styles such as pencil and leather, are highly trendy at the moment, and will look good with a blouse tucked in. A crisp white blouse, animal print or camel coloured, will keep your style fresh and fashionable. There are also lots of long sleeved tops options for wearing with your skirt. Add a pair of tights to keep your legs warm and cosy.
A long sleeved blouse or top, will also go well with a pair of everyday trousers, for an alternative look for the office, which will keep you warm. An oversized knitted jumper will also work well with a pair of trousers for work.
With any of these looks you can add a capelet or a warm winter coat for protection from the cold. A long, tweed or duffle coat, are ideal for wearing to the office, to keep the heat in, while maintaining your smart appearance. As camel is one of the key trends for this season, you can wear this colour for your winter coat, to keep you looking stylish.
When choosing footwear for work during the winter, keep an eye on some of the key trends. Depending on how cold the weather is, a pair of ankle or knee high boots will ensure your style is up-to-date, and again, look out for camel colours, as these are the hottest trend to be wearing this season. Wedge boots and kitten heels are also stylish options, but may not be suitable if you are wading to work through the snow. You can always wear boots to get to work, and change into a pair of slinky heels when you get there.
To complete your look for the office, you can add accessories such as a scarf and gloves. Leather gloves are a good choice to keep you looking smart, and a long knitted scarf, will ensure you are wrapped up warm for freezing conditions.
